John Ellsworth Jeffrey was born March 11th, 1939 at Neilburg, Saskatchewan and passed away at the Vegreville hospital on July 6th, 2017 at the age of 78. He is survived by his wife Patricia, three children: Janice (Barry) Knudslien, Brenda (Doug) Stefura and son Trever as well as eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.


John came from a large family in Saskatchewan and  was the eighth of 12 children. John worked on the oil rigs for a number of years before moving to Ryley. John worked for the Village of Ryley, which he put his heart and soul into for many years and when he retired he picked up a hobby of restoring old horse-drawn vehicles. He also enjoyed camping and fishing with his family and friends. In any other spare time, he enjoyed helping his family and friends whenever he could.  He was also a life member of the Lions Club. For the last few years, John had health issues which ended up taking a toll on his life. He will be missed so very much by his wife of 59 years and his family.


There will be no service at John's request. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Kidney Foundation and Ryley Bethel Lutheran Church.
